Your AC Unit Has Been Off for Months
Just like a car that sits in a garage for months without being cranked, your AC unit might be a little stiff when you turn it on in spring. Your air conditioner’s drainage hole may need a thorough cleaning and it might be due for a fill-up on cooling agents, too. It’s impossible to know exactly what kind of work your machine needs until you bring in an HVAC professional.
Spring Allergies Start with HVAC
Here in Charlotte, spring is the worst season of the year for allergens. Your HVAC system is your home’s first and last line of defense against contaminants like dust, pollen, and mites, and it needs to be in tip-top shape to combat spring’s worst aggressors. Be sure to change your AC filter at least once a month during spring and give all your return vents and grates a thorough dusting to keep allergens at a minimum.
Outdoor Encroachments on your HVAC System
When plants start growing in spring they may encroach on your outdoor HVAC unit. Be sure to clear away any overgrown brush, flowers, or grass from the base of your unit so hot air can escape. This will make your entire system run more efficiently and prevent your unit from cycling on and off again and again.
